White House spokesman Shin Inouye said Friday that the Department of
Justice is reviewing the decision by a federal judge ruling "don't ask,
don't tell" unconstitutional, but he added that President Barack Obama
continues to be focused on completing legislative repeal of the policy
"The Justice Department is studying the decision, including the question of its scope and immediate effect and we expect them to announce their next steps after that review is completed," Inouye said. "The president remains committed to legislative repeal of DADT, and he will continue to work with lawmakers to achieve that goal this fall. And he will continue to work closely with Secretary Gates, Admiral Mullen, and the Joint Chiefs of Staff on an ongoing study of how to best implement the repeal."
